This big package holds simply pure, raw, unadulterated Spanish Marcona almonds, ready to complement your own unique flavors and recipes. Spain's rich Marcona almonds are perfect for baking, cooking, and as a healthy snack.

Almonds are rich in nutrients such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B and linoleic acid. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%! Sauté these large, sweet, raw Marcona almonds in some olive oil and dust with salt, sugar or your favorite spice to create your own delicious, heart-healthy treat!

Marcona almonds have long been precious treasure inside Spain, used for many of their gourmet products, such as Turron candy. Although the ever-increasing demand for these delectable almonds has inspired farmers in Morocco and California to attempt production, most Marcona almonds are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain, from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the Mediterranean coast to Tarragona. They are generally larger, flatter and have a sweeter taste than the more familiar California almonds. In addition, unlike their North American cousins, Marcona almonds have a harder, non-porous protective shell that resists insects, which allows them to be grown naturally without herbicides.

To enjoy a simple crunchy snack, heat up a small amount of extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan or skillet. When the oil is very hot, toss in a few handfuls of these blanched nuts. Stir the simmering almonds with a wooden spoon until they become ever so slightly golden in color. Then scoop them into a bowl and sprinkle with sea salt. You don't need to be an accomplished chef to create this incredible taste! For the best flavor, Marcona almonds should be sautéed instead of roasted, as their delicate flavor can be overwhelmed by harsher cooking methods.

    "Can't get enough of the marconas! They even make a wonderful almond butter; I toast them first. "
  • EUNICE PRICE - SLIDELL, LA - Sep 25, 2015  
    "The almonds were vacuum sealed and well packaged. The price and quantity were the most competitive that I could find on the internet. My intention is to saute the almonds in olive oil and then sprinkle them with truffle salt, but I haven't do so yet. "

    "I have no words to describe how good this product is, definitely one of my favorites. They are very tasty almonds (they are really crunchy once cooked), just perfect for a quick "tapa" when you have some guests. Just cook them in olive oil and salt, let them cool and they are ready to enjoy!"

    "Marconas are simply the best almonds! I love these big bags of the plain ones from La Tienda because they are good for baking and I also like to salt and flavor them for snacking. "

    "These are always enjoyed whether your're serving them at the bridge table, after school snack for the grandkids, or baked in a wonderful olive oil cake. Healthful and delicious. I roast them in the oven with olive oil and a little salt. "

    "The purity of this Marcona raw almonds is exultant indulgence to the delicate palate. its flavor takes you back in time to fields cover with almond trees all over the Peninsula Iberica, in full bloom....The sweet taste, the fine texture and all its powerful health benefits, makes this food essential in your diet. I always have a pack with me at all times inside my purse, for those moments when you need a snack....nothing is better than a hand full of Marcona almonds."
  • Allyn - Aug 17, 2009  
    "I looked everywhere for these before finding them at La Tienda. Just pop them in the deep fryer for no more than 2 minutes (stop before they look browned- they keep cooking from the heat) and sprinkle on a little salt. These are always a hit at my parties- and they are so easy!"
